Summary

The impact that high school and college experiences and activities have on students' musical independence (MI) was investigated. MI is related to the actual production and performance of music, as opposed to musical achievement or the mastery of any academic skill related to music. Colwell's Musical Achievement Test 3, Musical Achievement Test 4, and the Instrumental College Survey-2 were administered to 276 music majors in 3 university bands. Seven statistical treatments were used to identify the relationships between the study's 46 items and student MI. Twelve activities and experiences were identified as important in MI formation, although not all were positive. The 24 items identified as positive for formation of MI were headed by the number of courses in private lessons, grades in ear training, time practicing solos and etudes, grades in theory, and time on other practice. Results suggest that selection of statistical method bears on items identified as having impact. Implications for music instruction are explored. One figure and one table present findings. Appendix A contains the student survey, and Appendixes B through L discuss the statistical methods used. (Contains 18 references.) (SLD)
